temperature trend the next several days. tomorrow will be like today, especially even in the temperature department. notice the average temperature now is 84 degrees. so for the next three or four days we'll either be below or just touching that average. a couple 81s in the forecast the next couple days, a little warmer father's day sunday and monday about 84 degrees. beyond monday that's when we think things will head for the upper 80s if not 90 degrees and the humidity will probably be back next week. can't keep it at bay forever. it is d.c., right? satellite and radar, a little cloud cover that has been moving in. it's associated with a storm developing off the east coast. we kind of got brushed with some of the decks of clouds especially from 95 on east, a lot of heavy rain down through florida tonight, nothing tropical and then a really severe squall line through the middle part of the country with over 200 reports of wind and hail damage out especially here across nebraska and kansas. that's where the strongest of
the line is. that line is not coming in our direction. it's going to weaken out. we will be continuing to be under the influence of high pressure as we head through the weekend. temperature-wise real comfortal, 72 degrees, dew points in check -- comfortable, 72 degrees, dew points in check in the upper 50s and low 60s, 70 degrees for annapolis, dulles, manassas and gaithersburg. we've got a bit warmer scenario tonight because of the cloud cover around where you get clear spots, a little better chance of that to our west. even across much of the northeast out into the midwest we're not finding anything significantly cooler than what we're dealing with in our own region. overnight temperatures will likely range from the mid-60s and going far enough west you will get down to the upper 50s. close to the bay where clouds are thicker, temperatures may stay in the middle 60s. the tall ships are coming into
baltimore. it's going to be spectacular and the weather is going to cooperate for that and the nats and yankees as high pressure rules the roost over the northeastern part of the united states even into the weekend. tomorrow into saturday we still have a bit of a northeast wind, kind of refreshing. it built up a few clouds. we'll break back into sunshine. it keeps temperatures very moderate. a warm sunny weekend expected for us. temperatures begin climb a little, probably only to 80 flee degrees on sunday and that is still be -- begin to climb a little, probably only to 83 degrees on sunday and that is still below average. temperature in the water 70 degrees, plenty of sunshine at the beaches, but notice the difference in the temperatures compared to what we'll see in the city. of course, that's picking up on the water temperature. as our northeast wind continues for saturday our temperature at the beach 72 degrees. might need a jacket at night for a bit, but certainly will
be refreshing. overnight clouds locally, cooler for the suburbs, 64 degrees, maybe some upper 50s far enough west it. has everything to do with that east wind 5 to 10 miles per hour. we'll still have a northeast breeze tomorrow. we'll have a mix of cloud and sun and comfortable temperatures definitely hanging around. at 8 a.m. a few clouds, 69. it will be real nice at noon, 77 degrees and 80 degrees at 5:00 under partly cloudy skies temperatures around the rest of the region. mostly in the upper 70s to the low 80s tomorrow, a mild end of the work week, a real nice run for us, no doubt about it. on your five-day forecast you can see these comfortable temperatures. next chance of any precipitation, just spotty storms monday and tuesday. we are keeping them off the father's day forecast. happy dad's day in advance to all you great guys out there. that's it for weather, but hey, something the guys love to talk about, golf. that's what lindsay is leading
